A Personal Conceptualization of Psychopathology

Better Brain, Better Game!

Introduction A conceptualization of psychopathology involves an attempt to come up with a clear definition of the term. It tries to delineate the kind of human experiences and psychological phenomena that can be considered to be psychopathological and the ones that cannot. A conceptualization of psychopathology never goes into the deep details of explaining the kind of psychological phenomena considered to be pathological. This is the work of the theories of psychopathology. A theory of psychopathology is thus an attempt to give an explanation of the psychological experiences and phenomena identified by the conceptualization of psychopathology. Some of the common theories of psychopathology include psychosynthesis, Jungian theory, trauma-based psychology, object-relations and others. This paper is based on a conceptualization of psychopathology in relation to the psychosynthesis theory.
